FROMUZ Release Sodom and Gomorrah Concept CDTuesday, July 30th, 2013 by 10TRecords2
The amazing musicians from Uzbekistan are back with “Sodom and Gomorrah,” a concept CD that features the acclaimed original FROMUZ line-up of Vitaly Popeloff (guitars), Albert Khalmurzaev (keyboards, guitars, vocals, harmonica), Vladimir Badirov (drums), and Andrey Mara-Novik (bass), plus Evgeniy Popelov (keyboards, vocals).
“Sodom & Gomorrah” was originally composed by multi-instrumentalist Albert Khalmurzaev as the soundtrack for a theatrical musical production of the same name at the Youth Theatre of Uzbekistan. Reinterpreting the Biblical tale of “Sodom and Gomorrah” as a conceptual foundation, it tells the story of our modern world, ravaged by global addictions and vice that can only be remedied through a change from within the very heart of the human condition.
This concept is conveyed through the well-established passion and incendiary musicianship that has become the hallmark of FROMUZ. This is modern progressive rock at its very finest.
FROMUZ originally performed “Sodom and Gomorrah” live over the course of three years, starting in 2004, actively working with the Youth Theater in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, as well as performances at prestigious theater festivals in St. Petersburg, Russia, the International Chekhov Festival (Moscow, Russia), and more. The band recorded the soundtrack during this time-frame, but it wasn’t until 2012 that the decision was made to return to those tracks, editing, mixing, and mastering them for an official release.
“We are so excited to be able to bring this great piece of conceptual music to the public,” says 10T Records president, Steve Carroll. “The fact that it features the original lineup that introduced FROMUZ to the world on their debut release, “Audio Diplomacy,” just makes it all the sweeter.”
“Sodom and Gomorrah” by FROMUZ is available for immediate shipping and download through the 10T Records online store. Additionally, all tracks from “Sodom and Gomorrah” are now available to preview in their entirety on the FROMUZ artist page at 10T Records.
After September 17, “Sodom and Gomorrah” will be available through your favorite retail outlet for immediate purchase.
